    Nintendo Law suit

    US law firm Green Welling (GW) has filed a class action lawsuit against Nintendo, alleging the videogames pioneer breached its own product warranty by shipping its Wii games console with a Remote wrist-strap that breaks even when used as directed.

    "The class action lawsuit seeks to enjoin Nintendo from continuing its unfair or deceptive business practices as it relates to the Nintendo Wii," the lawfirm stated. "The lawsuit also seeks an injunction that requires Nintendo to correct the defect in the Wii Remote and to provide a refund to the purchaser or to replace the defective Wii Remote with a Wii Remote that functions as it is warranted and intended."

    Dont know how reliable this news story is, and the website is from the UK so we'll just have to see what happens. Personally Nintendo is replacing the straps so i was careful enough to not break my TV. Good luck nintendo

    I think some people have too much time on their hands. I say we sue the people suing Nintendo for being stupid.

    This is very bad news could very well be the end of Nintendo if they win too with court costs etc.

    As kulupoo said, this is 'a day late'. Nintendo has already fixed the problem, which is the remedy they are asking for. Bunch of greedy goofballs.

    To Nave,
    It's not funded by anyone. There's a whole legal industry surrounding building bizarre merit less class action cases against companies. It's what the law firms involved do for a living. They cast a wide net and try to get the case certified as a class action. Once they are the recognized legal representation for the class, they will get a big chunk of money for their fees, even if the end-users just get new wrist straps.

    I wouldn't worry too much. The case will most likely be thrown out of court since Nintendo took steps to correct the problem. Even if there was a settlement Nintendo is insured for those types of situations and would not really affect their bottom line drastically.

    I think it's just a lawyer that smells money and wants to see if they can win a large settlement on behalf of us the wii users or soon to be users....sadly we will never see the money.....but, the lawyer may get a helipad out of it!
